Just four months after we last stopped by, the concrete superstructure of the Landmark apartment tower is rising quickly just west of the 405 Freeway.


The 34-story tower, which replaced a Pavilions market at 11750 Wilshire Boulevard, will feature 376 apartments - including 19 affordable units - above a 1,000-car garage which is to be shared with an adjacent office building.

Gensler is designing the glass-clad building, which will rise 349 feet above ground level.  A rendering shows that LED lighting would be inlaid into the building facade, creating a glowing tower element which rises to a rooftop cornice.

At ground-level, plans call for a one-acre green space adjacent to Wilshire Boulevard.  While not a public park, the landscaped area will offer tables, benches, chairs, and pathways for public use.

Douglas Emmett, Inc. is developing the Landmark apartment tower, which is billed as the first high-rise west of the 405 Freeway in more than four decades.
